Can a District punish teachers for advocating for children with disabilities?

  • New Jersey law protects school teachers and school therapists from adverse employment action or retaliation for advocating for special needs children.
  • If action is taken against somebody for advocating for someone with a disability  (including themselves), legal action can be taken to stop it.
  • If you (or someone you know) is facing adverse actions for advocating, you should see an experienced attorney to protect your rights.
